WELCOME TO

SEATTLE, WA

Seattle is a seaport city on the West Coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington. With an estimated 744,955 residents as of 2018, Seattle is the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region of North America.

 

According to U.S. Census data released in 2018, the Seattle metropolitan area's population stands at 3.94 million and ranks as the 15th largest in the United States. In July 2013, it was the fastest-growing major city in the United States and remained in the top 5 in May 2015 with an annual growth rate of 2.1%. In July 2016, Seattle was again the fastest-growing major U.S. city, with a 3.1% annual growth rate. Seattle is the northernmost large city in the United States. 

 

The city is situated on an isthmus between Puget Sound (an inlet of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington, about 100 miles (160 km) south of the Canada–United States border. A major gateway for trade with Asia, Seattle is the fourth-largest port in North America in terms of container handling as of 2015. The Seattle area was inhabited by Native Americans for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers. 

 

Arthur A. Denny and his group of travelers, subsequently known as the Denny Party, arrived from Illinois via Portland, Oregon, on the schooner Exact at Alki Point on November 13, 1851. The settlement was moved to the eastern shore of Elliott Bay and named "Seattle" in 1852, in honor of Chief Si'ahl of the local Duwamish and Suquamish tribes. 

 

Today, Seattle has high populations of Native, Scandinavian, African, and Asian Americans, as well as a thriving LGBT community that ranks 6th in the United States for the population. Logging was Seattle's first major industry, but by the late 19th century, the city had become a commercial and shipbuilding center as a gateway to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush. Growth after World War II was partially due to the local Boeing company, which established Seattle as a center for aircraft manufacturing. 

 

The Seattle area developed into a technology center from the 1980s onwards with companies like Microsoft becoming established in the region; Microsoft founder Bill Gates is a Seattleite by birth. Internet retailer Amazon was founded in Seattle in 1994, and major airline Alaska Airlines is based in SeaTac, Washington, serving Seattle's international airport, Seattle–Tacoma International Airport. 

 

The stream of new software, biotechnology, and Internet companies led to an economic revival, which increased the city's population by almost 50,000 between 1990 and 2000. Owing largely to its rapidly increasing population in the 21st century, Seattle and the state of Washington have some of the highest minimum wages in the country, at $15 per hour for smaller businesses and $16 for the city's largest employers. Seattle has a noteworthy musical history. From 1918 to 1951, nearly two dozen jazz nightclubs existed along Jackson Street, from the current Chinatown/International District to the Central District.

 

The jazz scene nurtured the early careers of Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Ernestine Anderson, and others. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock musician Jimi Hendrix, as well as the origin of the bands Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters and the alternative rock movement grunge. 

 

POLITICS &

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL

Seattle is a charter city, with a mayor-council form of government. From 1911 to 2013, Seattle's nine city councilors were elected at large, rather than by geographic subdivisions. For the 2015 election, this changed to a hybrid system of seven district members and two at-large members as a result of a ballot measure passed on November 5, 2013. 

 

The only other elected offices are the city attorney and Municipal Court judges. All city offices are officially non-partisan. Like some other parts of the United States, government and laws are also run by a series of ballot initiatives (allowing citizens to pass or reject laws), referenda (allowing citizens to approve or reject legislation already passed), and propositions (allowing specific government agencies to propose new laws or tax increases directly to the people).

 

Jenny Durkan was elected as mayor in the 2017 mayoral election and took office on November 28, 2017. The mayor's office also includes two deputy mayors, appointed to advise the mayor on policies; As of 2017, the city's deputy mayors are Michael Fong and Shefali Ranganathan. 

 

Seattle's political culture is very liberal and progressive for the United States, with over 80% of the population voting for the Democratic Party. All precincts in Seattle voted for Democratic Party candidate Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. In partisan elections for the Washington State Legislature and United States Congress, nearly all elections are won by Democrats. Although local elections are nonpartisan, most of the city's elected officials are known to be Democrats. 

 

In 1926, Seattle became the first major American city to elect a female mayor, Bertha Knight Landes. It has also elected an openly gay mayor, Ed Murray, and a third-party socialist councilor, Kshama Sawant. For the first time in the United States history, an openly gay black woman was elected to public office when Sherry Harris was elected as a Seattle city councilor in 1991.  The majority of the city council is female. 

 

Federally, Seattle is split between two congressional districts. Most of the city is in Washington's 7th congressional district, represented by Democrat Pramila Jayapal, the first Indian-American woman elected to Congress. She succeeded 28-year incumbent and fellow Democrat Jim McDermott. Part of southwestern Seattle is in the 9th District, represented by Democrat Adam Smith. Seattle is widely considered one of the most socially liberal cities in the United States, even surpassing Portland. In the 2012 U.S. general election, a majority of Seattleites voted to approve Referendum 74 and legalize gay marriage in Washington state. In the same election, an overwhelming majority of Seattleites also voted to approve the legalization of the recreational use of cannabis in the state. 

 

Like much of the Pacific Northwest (which has the lowest rate of church attendance in the United States and consistently reports the highest percentage of atheism, church attendance, religious belief, and political influence of religious leaders are much lower than in other parts of America. Seattle also has a thriving alternative press, with the Web-based daily Seattle Post-Intelligencer, several other online dailies (including Publicola and Crosscut), The Stranger (an alternative, left-leaning weekly), 

 

Seattle Weekly, and a number of issue-focused publications, including the nation's two largest online environmental magazines, Worldchanging and Grist.org. In July 2012, Seattle banned plastic shopping bags. In June 2014 the city passed a local ordinance to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour on a staged basis from 2015 to 2021. When fully implemented the $15 hourly rate will be the highest minimum wage in the nation. On October 6, 2014, Seattle officially replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day, honoring Seattle's Native American community and acknowledging the controversies surrounding the legacy of Christopher Columbus. 

 

On May 9, 2017, Mayor Murray announced he would not seek re-election following a lawsuit alleging sexual abuse of several teenaged boys in the 1980s.

A HISTORICAL BACKDROP FOR

SEATTLE, WA

Archaeological excavations suggest that Native Americans have inhabited the Seattle area for at least 4,000 years. By the time the first European settlers arrived, the people (subsequently called the Duwamish tribe) occupied at least seventeen villages in the areas around Elliott Bay.

 

The first European to visit the Seattle area was George Vancouver, in May 1792 during his 1791–95 expedition to chart the Pacific Northwest. In 1851, a large party led by Luther Collins made a location on land at the mouth of the Duwamish River; they formally claimed it on September 14, 1851. 

 

Thirteen days later, members of the Collins Party on the way to their claim passed three scouts of the Denny Party. Members of the Denny Party claimed land on Alki Point on September 28, 1851. The rest of the Denny Party set sail from Portland, Oregon, and landed on Alki point during a rainstorm on November 13, 1851. 

 

The name "Seattle" appears on official Washington Territory papers dated May 23, 1853, when the first plats for the village were filed. In 1855, nominal land settlements were established. On January 14, 1865, the Legislature of Territorial Washington incorporated the Town of Seattle with a board of trustees managing the city. 

 

The Town of Seattle was disincorporated on January 18, 1867, and remained a mere precinct of King County until late 1869, when a new petition was filed and the city was re-incorporated December 2, 1869, with a mayor-council government. The corporate seal of the City of Seattle carries the date "1869" and a likeness of Chief Sealth in the left profile. The second and most dramatic boom resulted from the Klondike Gold Rush, which ended the depression that had begun with the Panic of 1893. In a short time, Seattle became a major transportation center. 

 

On July 14, 1897, the S.S. Portland docked with its famed "ton of gold," and Seattle became the main transport and supply point for the miners in Alaska and the Yukon. Few of those working men found lasting wealth. However, it was Seattle's business of clothing the miners and feeding them salmon that panned out in the long run. Along with Seattle, other cities like Everett, Tacoma, Port Townsend, Bremerton, and Olympia, all in the Puget Sound region, became competitors for exchange, rather than mother lodes for extraction, of precious metals. 

 

The boom lasted well into the early part of the 20th century and funded many new Seattle companies and products. In 1907, 19-year-old James E. Casey borrowed $100 from a friend and founded the American Messenger Company (later UPS). Other Seattle companies founded during this period include Nordstrom and Eddie Bauer. Seattle brought in the Olmsted Brothers landscape architecture firm to design a system of parks and boulevards. War work again brought local prosperity during World War II, this time centered on Boeing aircraft. The war dispersed the city's numerous Japanese-American businessmen due to the Japanese American internment. 

 

After the war, the local economy dipped. It rose again with Boeing's growing dominance in the commercial airliner market. Seattle celebrated its restored prosperity and made a bid for world recognition with the Century 21 Exposition, the 1962 World's Fair, for which the iconic Space Needle was built. 

 

Another major local economic downturn was in the late 1960s and early 1970s, at a time when Boeing was heavily affected by the oil crises, loss of Government contracts, and costs and delays associated with the Boeing 747. Many people left the area to look for work elsewhere, and two local real estate agents put up a billboard reading "Will the last person leaving Seattle – Turn out the lights.” Another boom began as the city emerged from the Great Recession which commenced when Amazon.com moved its headquarters from North Beacon Hill to South Lake Union. 

 

This initiated a historic construction boom which resulted in the completion of almost 10,000 apartments in Seattle in 2017, which is more than any previous year and nearly twice as many as were built in 2016. Beginning in 2010, and for the next five years, Seattle gained an average of 14,511 residents per year, with the growth strongly skewed toward the center of the city, as unemployment dropped from roughly 9 percent to 3.6 percent. 

 

The city has found itself "bursting at the seams", with over 45,000 households spending more than half their income on housing and at least 2,800 people homeless, and with the country's sixth-worst rush hour traffic.

 
 

THE SERVICES

LFCG WILL PROVIDE

Marketing and sales are the foundation for every business organic growth. We have developed eight unique workshops based upon the latest available research to ensure LFCG clients are rigged for maximum organic growth.


Economy and finance are essential for sustainable growth, without proper and correct funding. A company doesn't stand a chance in the modern marketplace. At LFCG we have developed seven unique workshops to ensure our clients have the necessary know-how on how to get the funding they need. 


Legislations are of the utmost importance to ensure the business stays out of conflict and is properly protected when dealing with governments, customers, companies, and other stakeholders. At LFCG we have developed four unique workshops to ensure our clients are prepared for any obstacle. 


Organizational development 
At a certain point in any organization's lifespan, the way one organizes, recruiters and handles itself. Will determine how much the organization potentially can grow. At LFCG we have developed seven unique workshops to ensure our clients are rigged for maximum growth.


Proptech and digitalization
Proptech, fintech, digitization, automation and robotics, it is all happening at breathtaking speed. And any organization that can't keep up will easily and fast be left behind. At LFCG we have developed four unique workshops to ensure our clients stay on top of the digital wave. 


Miscellaneous 
There are always subjects our clients need to know and have a more comprehensive understanding of. That does not fit into any of our classical niches, hence we made an open category of the workshop where all those themes could be inserted. We currently have four unique workshops in that category. 

 

BUSINESS PROJECTS

LFCG WILL PROVIDE

Accelerator
LFCG needed an accelerator to help develop those technological solutions to our client's needs. So instead of waiting for someone else to make/build something only similar to our needs, we decided to go ahead and develop whatever necessary together with our partners and clients. Thus ensuring it is designed for and by the users hence guaranteeing its usage.  


Venture
In the processes related to developing workshops for our clients, we often stumble upon great market opportunities which none of our clients are in a position to engage or tap into. For these circumstances, we have created an LFCG venture. LFCG creates joint ventures with our partners and clients to ensure those market opportunities are handled properly. 


Madhatter
Madhatter is derived from venture and accelerators. The sole purpose of LFCG Madhatter is to ensure that even tech, projects or business opportunities that are not related to real estate. Gets a shot at being realized. As always we will invite all partners and clients for a joint effort to see it through.  


R&D 
Somewhere between knowledge, information, consumer behavior, behavior economics, legislation, and best practice is where you find LF R&D. We are mapping technological trends, international research, politics, global changes and expectations amongst stakeholders. So LFCG clients and their stakeholders can have evidence-based data to rely on when plans and decisions are made.  


Empowerment 
LFCG Empowerment will assist NGOs, political parties, sports clubs and such with light versions of our services for free. This is to ensure that they as important stakeholders in the public debate have the necessary information to take an active role and ensure their interests are heard. 


Education 
Joint ventures and coworking projects with universities to develop courses and educational programs that prepare the workforce of tomorrow for the recruitment needs of tomorrow. It is the essence of LFCG education. 


Business loyalty 
We designed and built our own loyalty program for two reasons. First and foremost to ensure our clients have a competitive edge on their competitors by being more cost-efficient. Secondly to ensure that anything that can be automated where automated, providing an even better competitive edge.   


Exchange 
At LFCG we believe that the MTF`s that's been popping up in the last ten years is just the beginning on more relaxed and efficient listings for midcap companies. The need for a listing is all about enabling our clients to liquidate their shares hence being more attractive for investors. We are building our exchange on blockchain technology and allowing buying and selling of shares with cryptocurrency through certified vendors.

 

THE LFCG

MODUS OPERANDI

How we work our MO

 

When we have an agreement, the first we will do is to send you an email.


We want to know what you do, how you do it, plans you have for executions, and other questions that tell us how you are handling the subject today.

When we have a clear vision on your day to day operations,  we will set up the workshop according to your current needs.


The workshop is all about the difference between what you do today and what you should be doing going forward.

After the workshop, you get easy to understand roadmap that outlines activities, routines, and other elements that you need to implement.

Why should you belive that our workshop will get you results?

 

We are not saying our way is always the only way, maybe not even the best way. However, our approach is still an effective way. Our way leads to wherever you want to go.

When we develop our services, we always start by looking into the latest research in areas such as:

  • Marketing.

  • Consumer behavior.

  • Economics.

  • Legislation.

  • Organizational theory.

  • Other subjects that can be interesting, as long it is related to business growth.

​Then we compare it to global trends such as the green movement or sustainability.


After that, we compare it with technological trends:

  • Artificial intelligence.

  • Internet of things.

  • Machine learning.

  • Blockchain.

  • Virtual reality.

The list of technologies is both long and evolving.

At this point, our expectations on where we can expect growth are crystallizing, but we still have a few steps to go. We include local politics. What politicians do, not what they say they do.

​Moreover, as a safety measure, we interview people from the business to see if our findings correlate with their observations or expectations.


If they do, and they always do, we take these findings to our service partners, which by the way we have approached because we know they are god working on this subject.

Our service partner makes an impact assessment and a need to do a workshop to handle and get in front of the impact.

​Then we, L&F CG, see what impact the changes this workshop creates for other subjects and include those subjects and activities in the workshop.

The workshop we sell to you is approved and developed by:

  • The latest research. 

  • The latest global trends. 

  • The latest technological trends. 

  • Political actions.  

  • What your peers are experiencing. 

  • Some of the best service providers around.

We are therefore quite confident that our way will get you there 
It's not the only way but a guaranteed working way.


So although L&F CG might still be a dwarf comparing sizes with more prominent companies.
We are standing on the shoulders of giants, and the view is excellent.
